September. Sunday September 18, 2016


Azure haze and
Moody light.

Instant flash!


Distant rolling rumble.

Heavy drops in Soaking heat.

Bake before the daily stove
Shower not 'till all is done.

Do it! Seize it! Live it!
Glory in it!

Wet heat. Wet hair. Wet clothes.
Wet face. Wet tongue. Wet skin.

Cooling, thrilling, timeless, mind filling.

Chilling, damp, alive

Calm, alert and alive!

A Moodscope member.

Great Lillypet. I got soaked once on my bike and decided when I got back that everyone should get soaked, really really soaked at least once in their lifetime. I also read that plunging into cod, water regularly can help with depression. yes..I know..depression could seem preferable to this and obvs I wouldn't recommend you do it without medical advice. Lillypet's shower sounds wonderful and the feeling of calm afterwards just what we need .Julxxx

Wet skin! Nice one, Lillypet. One says 'wet through', got so wet in Indonesia could wring out skin. On Lombok I had bargained for 2 batiks, persuading them to throw in a long tee-shirt, very proud of myself. In the Puncak (a most beautiful tea-growing area about an hour from Jakarta) we walked up towards one of the volcanoes - easy going, dry, gibbons booming in the trees somewhere, got a vague picture. Then it rained as it can only do in the tropics, and we descended through a slippery torrent. D-in-law had an umbrella - rest of us tried banana leaves - useless. I'd knotted my tee-shirt on my hip - then undid it to wring it out. My son said 'mother (only used when things are serious) DO you know what you are wearing? It was the most obscene, explicit design on the front! We went into a restaurant to eat and warm up, and dripped embarrassingly on the floor

Thank you for sharing such wonderfully vivid moments TG. Xx

Hi LiliPet.

I haven't exactly been in the habit of reading the poems (negligence, I know).

But, your words spoke to me.

I like a breaking thunderstorm, myself.

The 'pre-storm' static, the electromagnetic crescendo and then the pay-off.

The feeling of release! The raw, elemental power, as it passes over head!

Like giant's footsteps. Bliss!

Cheers, Duma.

Duma Sun, Sep 18th 2016 @ 11:12am

LillyPet, sorry. I ought to get your name right.

LP Sun, Sep 18th 2016 @ 11:15pm

Absolutely Duma, it's awesome! Thanks, :)

LP Sun, Sep 18th 2016 @ 11:17pm

Oh don't worry about that! I like both spellings I've changed it a couple of times myself! :)

'Pouring cold water on something'. Mr G has take an awful turn for the worst - I wheel-chaired him to mass to cheer us both up and meet people - the young organist was playing such dire music I'm more depressed than ever. Light relief, a very exuberant 18 month old, out of control - was running up and sitting on the altar steps. His best 'trick' was throwing his dummy on the carpet and jumping on it, looked round for applause, he then put it back in his mouth.

A great idea TG. Change of scenery, change of energy. LP xx
